Cook Franschhoek – a celebration of food and wine



At this year’s Cook Franschhoek we are getting back to basics. Join us from 13 to 15 June to join in the Franschhoek celebration of food!

Whether you have just started out in the kitchen or are a seasoned cook, whether you like working with meat or are passionate about baking, there will be something for you.

The interactive and exclusive hands-on demonstrations will be focusing on the following themes:

• Snout-to-tail
• Locally produced (direct from farm to table)
• Artisan baking (includes gluten free)
• Smoked meats (including charcuterie)
• Cooking over a fire (how to cook in a Weber, green eggs and rotisseries)
• Pickling, fermenting and preserving
• ‘Locavores’ (eating only what is produced locally, within a certain radius)

Most of the demonstrations include a beautifully prepared meal or taster, paired with a Franschhoek wine. This is the perfect opportunity to interact with the chefs and winemakers as well as master the art of intricate dishes. Be sure to book as soon as possible as groups are kept small to allow for one on one interaction.
